Martin Nutraceuticals Inc. Signs Exclusive Agreement for New Book Authored by Renowned Author and Speaker Dr. Anthony Martin

RENO, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 20, 2006 -- Martin Nutraceuticals Inc. (OTC: MNCL) has signed an exclusive agreement with renowned author and public speaker: Dr. Anthony Martin, to market and distribute his latest soon-to-be-released book.

For several years Dr. Martin, Director of Research at MNCL, has been on a lecture circuit discussing his previously published books: "Bark with Bite," "New Thin You," and "Steps to Fight Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for the Modern Women." The new agreement provides MNCL exclusive rights to Dr. Martin's newest book directed at educating consumers about personal health diagnosis, and all of his previously published books as well.

As 63% or 136.2 million Americans watch some form of Direct Response Television ("DRTV") advertising, the company plans to utilize DRTV, known more commonly to consumers as infomercials, to market and distribute the books. Additionally, Martin Nutraceuticals Inc. will soon offer in conjunction to its suite of proven effective natural products, the entire line of health-related books written by Dr. Martin via the company's website: http://www.martinnutra.com.

President of MNCL, Harvey Panesar, explained: "The opportunity to market and distribute all of Dr. Martin's existing and future books via infomercials should prove to be very exciting for the Company and our shareholders. Statistically, for every product sold on an infomercial, another estimated 3 to 10 will be sold later through retail, and typical successful infomercial products gross between $5 and $50 million per year! Our suite of marketing channels now covers every available medium from infomercials and web, to print publishing and radio. Furthermore, Dr. Martin's very popular books seamlessly help to endorse and complement our business of providing a better health and lifestyle through natural products."
